Hardwood floors are increasingly popular in modern homes. This is no surprise; they look beautiful. However, if you have hardwood stairs, you may be making your pet’s life difficult.
Dogs don’t tend to like hardwood and laminate surfaces because they are too slippery for their paws. Some dogs, especially very young or old ones, will refuse to use hardwood stairs. Even if they do, it may be a scary and stressful experience for them. The good news is that you can protect your furry friend and make your steps safer with attractive, non-slip carpet stair treads.
What Are Carpet Stair Treads?
Stair treads are specially-designed carpet pieces that cover your stairs to offer extra grip and comfort to anyone traveling up and down. They are non-slip and feature a latex backing that won’t damage your stairs.
Better yet, using these carpet pieces, you can protect your stairs from scratches, wear and tear. Stairs are often heavily-trafficked throughways in the home. Therefore, they tend to experience wear at an accelerated rate. Furthermore, your dog’s paws may accidentally cause scratches and scrapes on that beautiful hardwood. Some custom stair treads could be the answer.
What Options Can You Choose From?
Like carpeting any other carpeting product, stair treads are available in a variety of options. Choose from materials including the following:
- Sisal stair treads
- Seagrass stair treads
- Polyester stair treads
- Polypropylene stair treads
No matter what options you choose, your custom stair treads will help to make your home safer for your pets and others such as children and elderly family members. They provide a host of other benefits as well:
- A splash of style to your stairway
- Gentle on paws and feet
- Protects stairs from damage
- Easy installation process
